Chief Executive Officer at Coastal Carolina Hospital

I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the Bluffton -Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) clinic for the services it provides to underprivileged individuals in our community. In our community, there are many people deserving of healthcare. However, their personal situations may limit their access to quality care.

As a small community hospital, we do our best to provide access and care to all who come through our doors. Still, the needs are many and can be better addressed when we work together to offer services. That’s why Coastal Carolina Hospital is proud to support your efforts in offering medical care to residents in our service area, including Bluffton and Jasper County. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you.

Volunteer – Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine

I joined Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine in September 2011 because I needed to do something constructive with my free time. After losing my husband to cancer I was ready to throw myself into a worthy cause. I volunteer 2-3 afternoons a week and enjoy what I am doing. I like the interaction with the patients and my co-workers. It amazes me that so many of our volunteers give their time to a cause that needs our help.

We have a complement of great volunteers running the clinic including nurses, grant writers, interpreters, active board members and the list goes on. They are generous with their time and put out a lot of effort. Of course we can use more help at all levels. The clinic is growing and will always need financial support.

Personally working at VIM as a physician has been rewarding in that it allows me to extend my experience and knowledge in a useful and meaningful fashion. It also gives incentive to stay up to date with new developments in medicine.

I look forward to more of my time allotted to the clinic and the patients we serve.
